Question installing and using pkgsrc/pkgin on linux, crosscompiling for a netbsd target


I'll install netbsd on an old computer, but I am sure I'll have a hard time to get wireless internet working in a way or another. I figured I could do that easily if I managed to install things for this computer, on another one, the one I am using now, by crosscompiling. And that it would be a good training, isn't it ?
For now, if pkg_add and so on are recognized, I still can't "pkg_add pkgin" or any software: it says it doesn't know that package. How come ? I see it, it's there.

Here's my $PATH variable: $PATH=/usr/pkg/sbin:/usr/pkg/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/games:/usr/games

ps:some might remember me. Indeed, I failed using this system many time, but I am a romantic, and I can't stop feeling something in my heart anytime I read "pkgsrc" or "netbsd", I just don't know why... so here I am again
